Marian Central Key Club at Rolling Meadows High School for the Annual Spina Bifida Foundation Christmas Party

Key Club was contacted by Woodstock Kiwanis Club to help the Illinois Spina Bifida Association with its annual Christmas Party on December 3rd. Spina Bifida is a disease where a baby’s spinal cord fails to develop properly, leaving many of the children with it in wheelchairs or walking with crutches. There were 330 people that were responsible for being Christmas cheer to these amazing children. Fourteen volunteers from Key Club went to help throw the Christmas party and bring joy to these children. Key Club members helped decorate cookies and make Christmas door hangers and place mats. They also worked as greeters, served all 330 guests lunch and then cleaned up after the party was over. The happiness and joy the children have is one of the best feelings. Sophomore Michaela Henning said, “The whole experience was a lot of fun. Sarah Glatt (10), Ann Bush (10), and I ran the game table which was super fun. It was eye opening to see that others have it worse than you and giving back feels good especially during the holiday season.” Mrs. Kelly and the rest of Key Club were invited back to help with the party next year because they did such a great job with the party this year. Even just being around the children impacted the volunteers so much. All the children were full of joy and excitement to interact with new friends and see Santa. Everyone that went from Key Club seemed to have a great time and would love to go back next year and help.
